THE CHILD NEXT DOOR by Shalini Boland ~ 5 of 5 stars

The Child Next Door: An unputdownable psychological thriller with a brilliant twist by [Boland, Shalini]

Oh, poor Kirstie Rawlings!

After overhearing a man’s voice through her baby monitor, Kirstie is convinced that someone has tried – and will continue to try – to kidnap her infant daughter, Daisy. Every imaginable precaution to protect the baby is taken, but Kirstie still doesn’t feel safe. She won’t let Daisy out of her sight, sleeps on an uncomfortable futon in the nursery beside the crib, and triple checks the door and window locks multiple times each night. It’s an obsession, really, one that seems completely reasonable and warranted.

To Kirstie.

The deeper she delves into obsession, the more everyone, including her husband, Dom, questions her sanity, leaving Kirstie to her own devices as she tries to figure out who wants to kidnap Daisy.

I absolutely loved this book! It grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let go. I was sure early on that I figured out the identity of the potential kidnapper, but was I off base! It’s well written, beautifully plotted, and maintains a must-keep-reading pace.

This is the second of Ms. Boland’s works that I’ve read and I will definitely be reading more.
